The Normark national football team is the football team which currently represents the Elwynnese autonomous republic of Normark, and previously represented the Elwynnese constituent nation and independent nation of the same name. It is a member of the EMUFA, and is run by the NNFO. The team is the official predecessor and successor of the Nordic Union.

The team has existed three times in the FMF's history; firstly between mid-2010 and late 2011 as an independent nation, secondly between 2012 and mid-2013 as a constituent nation of Elwynn, and thirdly since 2020 as an Elwynnese autonomous republic.

History

The team was founded in mid-2010 after Normark's Micrasian claim was successful. The team competed in the World Cup qualifiers the following year, finishing second in their four-team group with eleven points, one point behind Interland. In doing so, the team qualified for the 2011 EMU Championships, where they could only finish bottom of their group with two points. Normark left Micras in late 2011.

Normark's successor state, the Nordic Union, returned to Micras in early 2012. Its national team competed in the year's qualifiers, finishing top of a tough five-team group with 15 points to reach the 2012 FMF World Cup and EMU 2012. In the World Cup, the team finished third in their group, missing-out on a place in the quarter-finals on goal difference, before finishing second by a point in their EMU 2012 group later in the year. Later in the year, the Nordic Union was annexed by Elwynn and reverted to its old name of Normark.

In the 2013 qualifiers, the team underperformed and finished third in their four-team group with eight points. Shortly afterwards, Normark was annexed by the Dominion and the team was merged into the Dominion's.

Normark returned to Micras in early 2020 after falling under Elwynnese rule for the first time since 2013, and subsequently rejoined the FMF.
